Teen committed suicide: Autopsy
Whitewater police still are investigating the circumstances leading to the death of Joseph R. Hummer, 18, but the autopsy did not reveal any foul play or a medical condition, Theder said.
“There was evidence that he hung himself,” Theder said.
Theder is waiting for toxicology results before making a final ruling.
Maintenance workers discovered Hummer, a UW-Whitewater freshman, in the northeast corner of Calvary Cemetery at 2:59 p.m., according to a press release from Whitewater police.
Hummer graduated second in the Turner High School class of 2008.
Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Daley-Murphy-Wisch funeral home in Beloit. A funeral service will take place at 10:30 a.m. Friday at St. Jude’s Catholic Church in Beloit.
Counseling services are available for UW-W students, faculty and staff at University Health and Counseling Services.
